remove firmware password macbook air . I have been through plenty of websites and posts where everyone said you must take your macbook air or thunderbolt mac to apple to reset the firmware password. That is not true. I am going to tell you how its done. The method is simple but can’t be done by most people including the smartest techs and hackers because it requires special equipment.
about the macbook efi password …..
all laptops have a bios chip INCLUDING THE NEW MACS. The only difference is that apple uses a NEWER BIOS CALLED EFI . If you ask any apple tech they will tell you that macs do not have a BIOS. Thats a bunch of crap!!! All computers need a chip to give out instructions when you press the power button. This chip on macs is manufactured by a company called MXIC6406LE and it is visible when you take off the bottom cover of your mac. MXIC EEPROM BIOS chips have been around for years. The process of resetting the password is done in one of two ways. The tech knows how to safely read the chip & decrypting the information on it breaking the password. Then reloading the firmware downloaded from apple. the second last case method requires the removal of the chip and replaced with another one that is programmed with new firmware. I used My own 2012 macbook with thunderbolt as a test machine.
here is some data on the mxic chip remmember these are blank and will need programming
step 3 put chip in that has firmware on it using infrared soldering.
step 5 restart like new mac.
step 6 just added this on june 6 2012 and is very important ….. you must use a blank hard drive and a fresh install of your operating system. If you use your old operating system you run the risk of it auto resetting the ICLOUD MOBILE ME PIN LOCK.
If you have a macbook air you must send the ssd drive because it also needs to be unlocked.
This process will remove the macbook EFI password and Remove the system PIN LOCK these are 2 separate locks so if your computer asks for a 4 or 6 digit pin it means its double locked.
I do not recommend anyone with a radio shack soldering iron to even attempt this or you will damage your logic board!!!! local customers are welcome

MACBOOK PRO EFI RETINA PASSWORD . WE CAN NOW REMOVE THE EFI PASSWORD AND THE PIN LOCK CODE ON THE NEW MACBOOK WITH THE RETINA DISPLAY. THE PROCESS IS A MORE COMPLEX AND TIME CONSUMING THAN THE OLDER MACBOOK MODELS. I HAVE ALREADY DESCRIBED ONE OF THE WAYS TO REMOVE THE EFI PASSWORD IN MY OTHER POST. http://jerseycityrepair.com/remove-firmware-password-macbook-air/
THE METHOD OF CHANGING THE EFI BIOS CHIP IS JUST THE START OF THE PROCESS.
THE SECOND STEP OF THE PROCESS REQUIRES THE REMOVAL OF THE PIN CODE LOCK THAT IS STORED ON BOTH THE EFI CHIP AND THE HARD DRIVE. MOST OF ALL THE FIRST ANSWER MOST TECHS WOULD SAY IS JUST ERASE THE HARD DRIVE . THATS A GREAT IDEA BUT LET THEM TRY ON MACBOOK WITH A RETINA DISPLAY THAT HAS A SSD DRIVE ON THE MOTHERBOARD.
STEP THREE REQUIRES THE UNLOCKING OF THE SSD DRIVE AS WELL. NONE OF THIS CAN BE DONE WITH A HARDWARE RESET BUTTON OR A SWAP THE RAM TRICK, ALL OF THOSE METHODS ARE LIKE COMPARING WINDOWS 98 TO WINDOWS 7.
ALL THREE STEPS HAVE TO BE DONE WITH SPECIAL EQUIPMENT WHILE THE MACBOOK S MOTHERBOARD IS OFF AND WITHOUT ANY POWER. THE MINUTE YOU POWER ON THE NORMAL BOOTUP SEQUENCE WILL LOCK EVERYTHING AND I MEAN EVERYTHING.
IN CONCLUSION I GAVE YOU A BRIEF DESCRIPTION ON HOW ITS DONE AND LET ME TELL YOU THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE A DEGREE IN COMPUTER OR ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND ABOUT $3000 WORTH OF TOOLS JUST TO DO THE JOB EVEN AFTER YOU UNDERSTAND HOW THE MOTHERBOARD WORKS.
